The award that belonged to the One- and Two-Family Custom Residences category, it was granted to projects that promote good design ; as a necessity of life, a sanctuary for the spirit and an architectural source important for the nation. Build within the historic mines of Lake Tahoe,Nevada; the house reflects the simple forms of the elevated land and wild surrounding. Use of Green materials and energy saving solar strategies, are achieved with the use of weathered wood, exposed natural concrete, low maintenance materials and south facing glass walls for solar capture. The home was designed as a weekend home and can accommodate comfortably up to 24 overnight guests and resulted from the idea of camping, enjoying the out doors , indoors-outdoors living. A great design ,well executed.
